Scorched Earth


Published 1991


"256 color VGA artillery game that allows up to 10 players to blow each other to bits. Tons of configurable options including weapons, defense mechanisms, weather, economics, etc. Can also be played by one person against various computer foes.

Scorched Earth is a simple, yet exciting artillery combat game, based on an auspicious history of artillery games. Most of the options are very intuitive, and you can begin playing with only a little bit of information. Then, when you are interested, you can poke in the dimmer recesses of the manual for more information and options (or just ignore it altogether!) "

Reviewer: dhekir - - April 12, 2015
Subject: A more advanced Bang! Bang! game, and a precursor to Worms
Windows 3.x fans undoubtedly remember Bang! Bang!, the classic cannon-shooting game.

This is a more sophisticated version of this "artillery" game genre, with different weapons, shields, and nice DOS particle effects.

Fans of the original Worms may consider Scorched Earth as one of its predecessors, where you could not (yet) move your tank.

Overall a classic, simple to play and hard to master.
